A warm welcome (despite the cold looking picture) to our first newsletter of 2021. We thought you'd like an update on what we are doing to support our students with their learning and teaching, health and wellbeing, finance and welfare in the current climate.
We've put into place a Safety Net Policy for academic results, extended student support hours seven days a week, safe social activities, a 100% rent credit in the third lockdown period for resident students unable to move back to campus halls due to government restrictions, and phone check-ins. More recently we've seen the launch of a Leeds Trinity COVID Hardship Fund — a government-backed fund which is separate to our existing Hardship Fund. This contribution has been matched by the University to enable us to support more students.
We wish all of our alumni community the very best for 2021 and we look forward to supporting you and hearing from you again this year.
